Building your online resume can be difficult, and there’s no guarantee that everyone will take the time to look at it. However, with the rise of social media, applications like LinkedIn allow you to gather your work experience in one place and share it with hundreds of prospective employers. But no one likes to update their profile constantly and keeping up with all the trainings/professional development opportunities can be daunting.
That’s where LinkedIn Learning comes in!
With LinkedIn Learning, not only do you gain access to over 15,000 courses in business, technology, and creative skills, but syncing your LinkedIn Learning Account with your personal LinkedIn account automatically displays all the trainings you have completed!
